What Are the Differences Between Your Three Types of Yarn?

Update Time:2024/5/24
100% polyester yarn
Our three types of yarn are very similar but have subtle differences. In common, they are all 100% polyester yarn and have a linen-like appearance with slub texture on the surface. This "slub" is somewhat like a caterpillar, giving it a plush feel, making the fabrics vivid like real natural fibers. 

The differences lie in the processing techniques of the three yarns. Polyester slub yarn is obtained through draw-texturing; polyester folded yarn, as a branch of fancy yarn, is produced by special modification of double-layer loops with twist, while polyester ATY yarn is produced through air-texturing. This results in different effects of the fabrics they create.

Additionally, the yarn density in DENIER varies: polyester slub yarn ranges from 30D to 600D, polyester folded yarn ranges from 170D to 540D, and polyester ATY yarn ranges from 300D to 1500D. Therefore, polyester slub yarn below 150D can be used for apparel, while polyester folded yarn and polyester ATY yarn are generally used for curtains and sofas.
